When NSFAS states the reason for your unsuccessful funding application as: 'you have exceeded the N+2 rule', it means you have been studying longer than the minimum allocated time for your qualification as well as the extra two years you have been given to complete your qualification.
Although the student application period is currently closed for the year, NSFAS has opened appeals for applicants who have had their applications rejected.
Here’s How To Appeal Your Nsfas Rejection Status
- Log into your ‘myNSFAS’ account on www.nsfas.org.za
- Click the 'Track Funding Progress' option
- Check the application progress tabs
- If your application status reflects an unsuccessful message, you may submit an appeal by clicking on the 'Submit Appeal Tab'
- Once you are on the 'Application Appeal' page, you can see the reason for your unsuccessful application status
- You are then able to choose the appeal reason
- Then upload certified supporting documents to support your reason
- Then click 'Submit Appeal'
- You may now track the progress of the appeal on your myNSFAS account.
You can track the progress of the appeal on your myNSFAS account after a few days. The Nsfas bursary covers tuition costs, accommodation costs, food, transport, textbook allowance and learning material costs.
